Larry Wheels is a 23 year old powerlifter and now aspiring bodybuilder.

He holds numerous powerlifting records in the 242 and 275 weight classes and a a phenomenal amount of muscle to show for it.  In December he announced his intention to compete in his first bodybuilding show early in 2018 and has not been shy about posting posing videos on the internet.


Some have compared him to Stan “The Rhino” Efferding, who was a powerlifter turned bodybuilder, the main difference being that Larry is much younger. Of course it is impressive that someone so strong can be so lean, and Larry has never been coy about his steroid use. At 21 years Barbend reports that he was plagued by common teenage vices like alcohol and recreational drugs. Then he decided to make a change and “replace one vice with another, and that was steroids.”

When starting steroids he said he believed that “more is better,” taking up to 1,200 milligrams of testosterone, and at one point trenbolone, dianabol, and a “clone” of superdrol, all in the same sixteen-week cycle.


He experimented with 400mg doses of trenbolone acetate and 450mg doses trenbolone enanthate. Of course the repercussions were severe.

“I felt miserable. My stomach felt like there was a living rat eating away at my intestines.”

Now he says, all the experimentation has yielded him with a reliable stack.

“Test and anadrol, that is my bread and butter as of September last year. With anadrol, I have no notable side effects other than high blood pressure, which I can feel when I go to tie my shoes in the morning and my head blows up like a tomato.”

He said that, anadrol offers him, “by far the most strength (and) least side effects.”


Regardless of one’s opinions on steroids, it is refreshing to hear an athlete be open and honest about them. He also seems to be honest with himself, saying that he knows steroids are a “lifelong commitment.”

As far as his physique is concerned, he looks massive, well-conditioned, and well proportioned. His one weakness may be his triceps, a common lagging muscle among powerlifters, but one relatively easy to correct. The biggest question sill likely prove to be the sustainability of his training and pharmacological supplementation.

  1. Been into bodybuilding since I was 13. Steroids have always crossed my mind, but never followed through.. being in the gym so much, I’ve come across numourous steroid users, and all have said it’s not worth it with all the health risk. How many guys really make good money off of It? Not a lot. Those young buck need to think b4 doing it, is it worth it in the long run? Be smart my friends

  2. If we are going to critique his physique it would be the kegs. How the hell is he that strong and his legs look so subpar. This is where mind to muscle connection comes in. It’s not about the weight. He’s a prime example.

    • If you’re prone to prehypertension, yes, it will be high. Will that kill you? not even close.. on mild stacks I’ve been able to control it with just Hawthorne berries and Arginine AKG.. On stronger stacks I’ve enlisted a doc to put me on some beta blockers. Every single side effect of responsible cycles can be countered with just a little research, common sense, and tenacity…

    • Largly the hypertension depends on 1 your genetics, 2 the steroids you use 3 the dosage and 4 your diet

      Most people taking just testosterone or Deca with a proper AI shouldn’t notice a drastic change in BP.

  3. You wanna juice cool! to compete seems like you gotta, to each their own but I wanted to give a big shot out to those lifters the natural ones who have been putting in years n years of hard work! mental, physical no extra help just pure heart and determination keep doing your thing we the real examples of health n fitness. Not trying to push supplements or get as big as possible for likes and followers i mean way before that shit even existed. Amen!

  4. Lost respect for Larry I thought all this time he’s a natural beast …but now it’s just wow..and for those who take it just why I mean strength but why take shortcuts a.m. I the only one who believes the long road is way better once you go the distance you’ll develop everything with hard work as for testosterone use natural I mean like oyster zinc or use a natural testosterone from the earth …if I were to ever take a testosterone supplement it would be from tek naturals only 12 ingredients and it’s natural meaning your body will still produce testosterone

  5. Why do people give a shit what another adult is doing. If he does steroids it’s his body. In my eyes he’s more dedicated than you whiner fuckin scrubs, he does what he has to to dominate!

  6. All an athlete like Larry needs to do to crossover is swap out his training routine for “old School Bodybuilding” PUMPING style training regimen and diet down he could easily get an IFBB Pro Card

  7. If Larry Wheels wants to take steroids that’s his choice. Then he needs to be respected for his choice and who he is. I know a natural bodybuilder this person use to work at a health food store this person was huge naturally. I admire all bodybuilder and weight lifters. Natural or other wise. I started training for my health many years ago. I love people that are healthy and do what they do. I also believe that genetics plays a big part of it to. Not just training or diet alone.

  8. anytime there is a thread about steroids you always have a bunch of dumb ignorant people coming out bashing what they dont know about, but these same idiots will drink alcohol, eat junk food, excessive sugar and take pharmaceutical drugs for the slightest issue not knowing that they are destroying their bodies, in their idiotic minds they are healthy because they are not on the juice.

  9. It’s so funny that so many like generation iron
    Post something that the bb in it
    Use steroids
    And from his pics
    We all can see that this 23 years old boy…
    Yes yes this is a kid
    Use so much of it.
    Now … so many kids have FB and they all over ig YT….
    And they see that to be like that
    They must use steroids

    Every day someone that use it get sik or k.o ….
    This shit is bad very bad
    Of not now … so in 5 10 15 years you will get that kick and cry firvthe day that you start use it.
    But you can’t go back some time .

  10. Anadrol has absolutely horrendous side effects on the system with sustained use. He’s honestly an idiot if he’s sayin he only gets high blood pressure. The hepatoxicity is crazy from it. Altho, Great cost comes with great benefit it’s probably the most potent steroid for strength increase and he lifts crazy amounts so – best of luck to him
